Ten Rules for Resolutions Success

Dear Dr. Andrews,
Every year I make my new year’s resolutions but for some reason I never have any success in sticking with them. This year I would like to put exercise into my daily routine and quit smoking. In the past I lost my enthusiasm quickly and I was back where I started, which made me feel like a failure. Are other people successful in their resolutions, and could you give me some suggestions on how to realize mine. I want to stop feeling disappointed in myself.
“Success in 2010”

Dear “Success”,
I think it’s great that you want to take better care of yourself as your new year’s resolutions reflect. Many people all over the world use this time of year to “take inventory” of how their lives have been in the past year, assess the things they’d planned to do and did, and come to the realization that there were still some things they did not accomplish. This realization, often puts some pressure on everyone, and it could lead to the individuals renewing their resolutions for the New Year much too quickly. Frequently, disappointment and a sense of failure give way to renewed hope that a new beginning could perhaps be made with the start of the New Year.You must know that you are not alone in having difficulty keeping your New Year’s resolutions. Research tells us that only about 40% of the people who make them are able to keep them on the first attempt. The rest make several attempts and many often will succeed on the fifth or sixth attempt. The following are some suggestions to help you succeed this year:
1. Make the decision to make a change for you and no one else.
2. A strong commitment to your goal is very important.
3. Start taking action today. One does not achieve change by thinking about it but by doing
4. Take small steps daily, e.g., when it comes to losing weight, start walking 10 minutes every
day or eat half the portion of a meal that you would eat otherwise.
5. Have realistic expectations for yourself. It is truly amazing how being realistic about our
goals does not overwhelm us and produces amazing results.
6. Avoid being critical of yourself if you slip. Keep in mind that change is a process and it takes
7. Be consistent. Through the accumulation of small actions we get big results.
8. We all want fast changes but we shouldn’t underestimate the factor of time. Changes require
us to be patient.
9. Make a list with coping strategies and several names of people who can be your support
system in your quest to lose weight and stop smoking. You might even find someone to do
this together with and you can motivate each other.
10. Never frame your resolutions as absolutes by saying “I will never do this again.” Success is a
process of changing all habits.
As the well-known football player and coach, Jim Ryan put it, “Motivation is what gets us started. Habit is what keeps us going.” Get into action today with small, consistent steps and before you know it, you’ll be meeting your goals.

"Subtle Intention" Opens Door To Goal Success

Hello friends,

This week, I'm in Carlsbad California, at the CHOPRA Center, training with Dr. Deepak Chopra and Dr. David Simon.
It has been an amazing experience, one that words simply cannot fully describe.
Here are some incredible ideas that I would like to share with you.
Through meditation and practicing silence, we go inward, quiet our mind from that old "chatter" and allow for our intentions to manifest into the outcome we want, by letting go of the anxiety and stress we used to feel .
The good news is, that we do not have to try hard to reach our goals.
All you need to do, is get clear about what you want be aware of your timing, get comfortable with that feeling of uncertainty, while you create a subtle intention and watch with "curiosity" how things develop in your life.
I am doing this myself and am manifesting several things that seemed impossible just last week.
You too, can have this fantastic experience and I assure you, you will be amazed with the results. Things do not have to be hard, instead we must develop new strategies of thought and action. This way, we'll be able to enjoy this journey that's called life, much more than ever before. Right now, ask yourself, "What is it that I want to manifest in my life today, this week, or next month?" Do you want to Stop Smoking, Lose Weight, make more money, have the job of your dreams? Hypnosis and Life Coaching, help you achieve clarity, let go of anxiety and create the "Subtle Intention", which is the key to fulfilling your desires.
Make your decision today and step into your dreams!
Please let me hear your thoughts.
This is the beginning of a conversation which it's my wish you will find interesting and thought provoking as you are looking into the end of another year and the beginning of a new one.

Love and Peace to you,

Are You Overweight?

Q. I have tried everything to lose weight, including exercise, diets, various self help groups.
Some of them worked for a while but a few months later I stopped losing weight. My friends quit smoking with hypnosis. Can it help me lose weight and keep it off?

A. Most people overeat to compensate for something that is unpleasant: fear, anxiety, anger, hurt, loneliness, home or family problems, losses, boredom. Hypnosis can reveal the problem, resolve difficulties, change your attitude and reduce the need and desire for excessive food intake. Hypnosis helps you lose the weight effortlessly and keep it off. No diets, no deprivation, no willpower needed.
Research has shown that hypnosis can help people with eating-disorders, motivation, insomnia, anxiety/panic attacks, phobias, success or sports performance. It is effective with addictions, depression, healing traumatic memories and any behavior or emotion you want to change and feel better.

Hypnosis and Behavior Modification, help you let go of cravings

Q. I hear a lot about habits and behavior modification and hypnosis. How do they work and can they help me to change my habit of eating sweets? I want to stop craving chocolate and reach for fruit instead.

A. Behavior modification implies the change of a habit. Habits are developed and maintained by a reward system and in time they become ingrained in the person's behavior.
Habits operate out of the subconscious, and that is why they are automatic. No cognitive thinking takes place.
Hypnosis is a very powerful tool for changing habits. However, such changes can be made possible only if the person is willing to make a commitment. During hypnosis a desire for change is communicated to the subconscious mind, through the hypnotic suggestions the hypnotherapist gives to the individual. At the same time, the old habit is been "replaced" with a positive, healthy pattern., i.e., you let go of the craving for chocolate, and now you enjoy fresh strawberries and melon in its place. This is very effective because a new reward system is now being established, i.e., you eat strawberries and fruits and you get rid of unwanted pounds. This way you begin to reach your" ideal "weight and look slim and healthy!
The behavior then is modified effortlessly and permanently in a brief period of time with great results.

Hypnosis, EFT and Motivation Coaching Help You Change Your Thoughts and Stop Binging

I lose weight but when I'm close to my goal weight I start binging. I feel totally hopeless and have no idea, what to do. Can hypnosis help me to stop my binging habit?

Hypnosis, is a very powerful tool when it comes to changing habits. In hypnosis, we work with your desire to stop binging and make that change through the subconscious mind.
Your subconscious receives suggestions that will make a permanent change in your eating habits and more importantly will "shift" your thoughts about food.
You will learn to eat only when you are hungry and stop eating when you are satisfied. You will
experience freedom from eating out of habit, boredom , anxiety, disappointment, frustration, anger or worry. Before now, binging may have given you a sense of control , but you must understand that this was "superficial " and not the " real" lasting feeling of control that you want to have in your life.
A program that includes Hypnosis, Emotional Freedom Technique and Motivation Coaching,, will help you love and accept yourself truly and stop responding to the "thoughts" of binging , instead, you will feel empowered and free.
As a result, your relationship with food will change and food will no longer feel like the "enemy". Remember, that YOU, are far more important than cookies pizza or ice-cream.
You are an amazing , person who can do anything you decide and "THEY" are only things.
Yes, you can stop the never ending cycle of binging and live the life you want.
Believe it and take action to claim your happiness, Today.

Can a Teenager Stop Emotional Eating?

My daughter is an overweight teenager. She refuses to go to school because of the way she feels about herself. She doesn't seem to think a lot of herself and is constantly depressed. What can I do to help her?

Teenagers today face more pressures and expectations than ever before. It is very hard trying to grow up with the added stress of peer pressure and wanting to fit in. Teen girls are especially self-conscious about their appearance, and weight issues can contribute to low self-esteem , angry feelings and a sense of hopelessness. Your daughter may be using food to soothe her stress, anxiety and fears. This of course causes a continuous cycle of weight gain, depression, overeating, and so on.
Listen to your daughter's feelings . She may be overeating because she is anxious, depressed or angry with herself or others. Those feelings can be changed from within with the use of Hypnosis and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). She will feel better about herself and gain confidence and self-esteem. Hypnosis and EFT together would help her stop the compulsive eating and alleviate the reasons that lead to “emotional eating” and the unhappy feelings that come with it.
